Humanists of Minnesota has teamed up with Minnesota Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (MVUUF) to co-sponsor a monthly “sex ed” series for young adults and young parents. This session's topic will be "Smitten Kitten: A Demonstration of Sex Toys." A professional guest speaker will be on-site to engage in a fun dialogue. The program will not be a sales presentation; inventory of product can easily be ordered via Smitten Kitten's website.

Professional childcare will be provided for those who RSVP in advance. A potluck dinner and beer will be served at 6:30PM and the talk will begin promptly at 7:00PM to take advantage of our professional childcare. Please bring a potluck item to share if you want to have dinner with us; a main dish will be provided. All MVUUF members, friends and fellow humanists are welcome between the ages of 21-40. Contact Jill Carlson for more information and/or to RSVP for childcare.

This program is being coordinated by Jill Carlson, a licensed therapist, who is an active member in three organizations that advocate humanist values: MVUUF, Humanists of MN and MN Atheists. There is no cost for the program thanks to a grant from the Unitarian Universalist Association which has been an advocate of comprehensive, secular-based sex education for decades.
